Cottageville Police last week hosted the second annual ‘Cops Reading to Kids’ at Town Hall. The event was started after an officer’s mother, a teacher, mentioned that many young students lose reading skills during summer vacation. Pictured are Chief Jeffery Cook and his daughter, Abigail, 4. The sixth annual “Kids & Cops Car Wash” took place Aug. 12, also sponsored by Cottageville police. The event was free but donations of cash and school supplies were accepted. All money collected is used to buy school supplies for Colleton County students.
